Thanks for your feedback. All our nursing bras feature retainer straps as opposed to an A-frame ‘sling’ as this means our cups can drop down fully to prevent any restriction to the delicate milk ducts and glands as the breast changes throughout the day.

Hi Meaghen, thanks for your feedback and we’re sorry to hear you are not happy with our Sadie bra. USA sizes and British sizes are different after D cup so it’s imperative to make sure your size is correct for a British bra. This does often cause confusion and could be the reason you have not found the perfect fit with Sadie. We would suggest you try a larger band size and you should find the whole bra, including the fabric, much more comfortable. It is incredibly unusual for people to find our fabrics uncomfortable and this could be the cause for your discomfort.
As for the ‘grey design’ you mentioned, what you are seeing is the X-STATIC® fibre made with 99% pure silver and which is 100% natural. This can be a difficult feature to show through product photographs but offers so many benefits such as being anti-bacterial, anti-odour, static reducing and thermo-regulating to help regulate your body temperature and therefore keeping you more comfortable.

Hi Carrie, thanks for your feedback. The piece of elastic you mention is called a retainer strap, and is designed to keep the shoulder strap in place (rather than support the breast) whilst the cup is open.
With regard to the cup sizing – please be aware that our products are based on UK sizing, which may explain the difference in fit. Hope that helps.

As Royce products are all non-wired, our designers have to source and select great quality, firm fabrics for our bras – as these fabrics are necessary to do the job that an underwire would do in a wired bra. This can sometimes result in a bra feeling a little tight and fitting a little differently to a wired bra – it can take some getting used to!

If you are used to wired bras, it can be difficult to adjust to the varying fit of non-wired bras. We would advise you to adjust your straps accordingly and continue to wear the style for a few days to get used to the different styling.

Dear Whitney, thank you for your comments. The nature of non-wired bras mean there tends to be a little more coverage than you would get from a wired bra. This is because the fabrics and components need to do the job the wire would normally do. I would suggest that if you are finding the 819 bra uncomfortable, perhaps you could try our Royce Charlotte Nursing bra 822
which is cut slightly lower under the arm. This is available to buy from HerRoom.com. Good luck!
